  • Jazz/fusion, classical
  • Started brewing back in the nineties, in Oslo/Norway, using extract kits. I brewed for my annual x-mas party. Brewed a few batches of wine too. The results were not very consistent and I gave up. Not many sources of good info back in those days. Internet was something we had only heard of. Craft beer interest grew from 2007 onwards when I had moved from Ireland to France where I got exposed to French and Belgian ales with plenty of taste (and alcohol). From being interested, seeking knowledge led to sources such as the Jamil Show and this home b rew forum, and started to gather the pieces and build up my home brewery. Brewing in my garage with a cheap, manual, home-made setup, based on gravity, electricity and gas.

    A couple of things I see. You pitched approximately 4 times the amount of yeast that would
    normally be used. Without knowing the characteristics of the yeast your ideal fermentation
    temperature is a W...

    Happy new year, brewers! A small update on this post. The beer fermented down to around 1.010,
    I bottle conditioned it to around 1.8 vol co2. I'm perfectly happy with the result. It has a

    I was thinking the same, but the airlock has had a very easy job. Fermentation has been quiet,
    sivilised and steady. Yesterday's sg measured 1.013, and it was still chugging quietly away.

    i've done it before. People have different experiences with it due to it not being one

    Belgian... wasn't bad but w...
